Earth For Sale
Want a hi-res picture of your hometown taken from space to hang on the wall? Or maybe a beautiful abstract of sand dunes in Oman? Pay a visit to DigitalGlobe's new online store, where you can buy poster-size (24x36-inch) aerial and satellite images of everything from natural landscapes to hot spots in the news. A download will cost you $24.99, and there's plenty to choose from, like this scene of the Rakaia River in New Zealand, one of the largest braided rivers in the world, which DigitalGlobe picked as its top image of 2011. See a larger version of the photo here.
